The Singapore-headquartered ship manager is expanding its footprint in Europe with the new Hamburg office run by Synergy Marine Germany.

“We have seen an upsurge in demand for top quality ship management services from European ship owners and many of the world’s leading owners are headquartered in Germany,” said Martin Ackermann, Synergy Group Chief Commercial Officer. “Hamburg was an obvious base for us.”

“The opening of this office further expands our global network and allows us to provide the technology-driven ship management solutions and fleet optimisation services our clients rely on.”

The office is Synergy’s 25th and its network spans 13 countries.

“Our German clients demand best-in-class services and expect their ship manager to collaborate with them as our industry manages challenges such as decarbonisation and digitalisation,” said Captain Rajesh Unni, Synergy Group Founder and CEO. “This new office will ensure we meet those requirements.”

Further expansion could be on the cards. “We will continue to strengthen and expand our network to ensure we meet and exceed the expectations our clients quite rightly place upon us,” Capt Unni said.

Synergy operates a diverse fleet of over 500 vessels and employs more than 18,000 seafarers.
